I L*O*V*E to wear solid colored T-shirts with my jeans. It’s about all I own, so I’m always on the lookout for cuti-fied belts.
These belts are easy to make and don’t use up alot of fabric. You could even do a patchwork belt for even more color and personality
Basically we are making a large bias tape.
1. Fold the fabric piece in half wrong sides together, so you are making one long folded piece. Press
2. Open back up and see a nice crease right down the middle
3. Take one of the sides and fold it up to meet the crease. Don’t put it all the way to the crease, make sure to leave a smidgen of room for folding
4. Repeat on the other side
1. Cut your piece of batting to fit inside under one of the flaps (will be 1.25” and the length of the belt)
2. Fold the fabric back over the batting
3. Fold the belt over again
4. Pin to secure, making sure edges are even.
1. On the unfinished side, slide the 2 D-Rings over the belt.
2. Fold about a 1/2” over
3. Fold over again about an inch, this time sliding the D-Rings under to secure
4. Secure with a line of stitching. I back stitched a few times to make extra secure
